Guatemala's Volcano of Fire emits another hot sediment flow

Guatemala's Volcano of Fire emits another hot sediment flow

The death toll from the volcano's eruption has been gradually rising as rescue teams scoured the ravaged landscape, which is coated in ash.

Guatemala's deadly eruption has so far claimed the lives of more than 100 people as rescuers continue to scour the ash-ravaged landscape, with many more people still missing.

"If the search is not going to be continued (authorities) should send us help because even if it's just bones, we want our families back", said Eufemia Garcia, 47, a housewife.

Donations can mailed to or dropped off at 2054 SE California St.

Though formal search efforts have been suspended until the volcano stabilizes, some people are still searching for their missing relatives.

Officials search efforts for the missing were suspended for the third straight day on Saturday amid risky conditions, but in places like San Miguel Los Lotes families and volunteers continued the search. Her family had gathered for lunch because her sister was visiting from a village nearby.

Rapping furiously at one door after the next, she cried for them to flee. Her 75-year-old mother decided she could not outrun the danger. From a safe distance, she saw the burning flow rise to the roof of her house, submerging it completely with her son Jaime, 21, inside. The visiting sister and her husband have not been found.

"I sometimes think that this is like a dream, but this is the reality", said Concepcion Garcia, a farm worker, as he helped bury his brother at a cemetery in Escuintla near the volcano's base.

With nearly no family left, she does not know where she will live next, or what she will do to survive.

She ticks off her list of all the members that are missing since the volcanic eruption.

On Friday afternoon, the Garcia family buried five relatives who died in the eruption that sunk many homes in brown ash.
